Join your school at Walmart this weekend

Join your school at Walmart this weekend to “pack a bus” with school supplies! [ http://ow.ly/zJ9Le ]

The Big Yellow Bus Is At Walmart!!!

The big yellow bus is over in front of the Camden Walmart, which can only mean that “Stuff a Bus” is about to begin.  On Friday and Saturday, the school district and Walmart will partner to collect school supplies for deserving young people.  During the day on Friday and Saturday, staff members from our schools will be at the store to thank folks for contributing.  We are very grateful to everyone at the Camden Walmart for partnering with us to make this happen!

A Very Good Day….

Registration Day was a very good day!  I was excited to see all the energy and enthusiasm for a new school year.  I’d ask families who weren’t able to make it yesterday to register as soon as possible.  Registration numbers are extremely important in terms of helping us to finalize teacher staffing in particular, but also to finalize areas like bus routes.  Many thanks to everyone in the schools for making the day go so well!

Letter On Standards And Testing….

A letter I submitted to the State newspaper on curriculum standards and testing appeared in today’s edition…

Admin Meetings

I was extremely energized by our first day of administrative meetings today.  Heard some excellent presentations and had some very good discussion about critical issues facing school districts this year.  Feeling very fortunate and blessed to be able to work with such as strong group of professionals!  School starts three weeks from today!
